Hi guys

60 days today, a good start but only a start. Looking forward to doing the next 60 days with some life lessons from Allen Carr.

1. Gambling is a clever con trick.

2. No will power is required as I am not giving anything up but the opposite, liberating myself.

3. I will never question my decision not to gamble.

4. I will not have that first bet.

Take care.

Shaun

Yayyy day 61 for you Shaun!
Day 19 for me too..!

I'm just going to get comfy and read chapter one before sleep.

Keep going very proud of you xx

Hi guys

Here is to fast forwarding to Monday, when we have all had a gamble free weekend. If you get tempted at all, just remind of yourself of that satisfying moment you will get a after a couple of days.

Hi, I’ve just made my first post on here, mainly after reading this thread and looking at all the links and other useful information shared about what you’ve all learned/found useful - it’s been enlightening and very powerful stuff for me, so thank you! 

 

Shaun I think you’ve done, and are doing remarkably well so keep up the good work, and I love the little posts to keep us all on track over the weekends :)  you probably don’t know how important those words of encouragement are, so thanks again!

Thanks for the messages guys, stopping gambling was always a struggle for me unitil I read the Allen Carr book. Things are looking up for me, 62 days gamble free and after today’s weigh in, losing 16lbs in 6 weeks on slimming world, another 2 stone to go.

If we do get tempted, just think of that gut wrenching, zombie state feeling we get after a loss, NO THANKS.

Stay safe and keep racking up those gamble free days.

Hi guys

64 days today, not that counting, lol!

Let’s all start the week off with renewed/continued hope that we will beat gambling. Good news for us, we are not gambling, bad news for the gambling industry, they are not getting richer off us, ha, ha.

Yayyy £64 it won't be long when you are shopping in Primarnie, just don't go on Black Friday this week, it be bedlam in Manchester. 

Has your wife noticed your personality has changed, my friend said today I seem so much happier and relaxed. And she ask where my mobile was, I said in my bag why, oh nothing she said, I knew she meant it was always in my hand even in company. 

Keep smiling hunmi - Belz xx

Hi Guys

All is fine and chilled out, I hope you are feeling the great love also, everything seems calmer without gambling. Just goes to show, why would we participate in an activity which has the opposite effect, nah, gambling is not for us, they can keep it.

Speak soon
